PACIFIC FC MAKES HISTORY

Posted on
Hendrik Starostzik CanPL Pacific FC

The Canadian Premier League (CPL) kicked off its debut on Vancouver Island to a sellout crowd of soccer craved fans this past weekend. Over five thousand were on hand to watch history take place as Pacific FC played host to Halifax’s HFX Wanderers FC.

I was fortunate to be one of the team photographers and capture photos of this historical game at Westhills Stadium. The fans were loud and proud waving team coloured souvenir towels and many donning the team jerseys. Pacific FC was victorious against The Wanderers in their inaugural home opener 1-0. Scoring for Pacific was Pacific defender Hendrik Starostzik scoring at the 23rd-minute mark. Pacific FC will be back in action Wednesday night under the lights at 8:00 pm against Winnipeg’s Valour FC.
